You’ve also got a wonderful interview with the poet in audio format, on the top of that page. Therein you can listen to the poet talk on his tryst with the language, and the various factors that conditioned his writing.
The first three poems that we would be taking up for our discussion in class would be –
Margaret Atwood’s ‘Journey to the Interior’
David Dabydeen’s ‘Two Cultures’
Chinua Achebe’s ‘Refugee Mother and Child’
